The installation roadmap lists the high-level steps for installing Db2® Big SQL.
I. Prepare your environment
- Determine system and software compatibility.
- Meet hardware and software requirements.
- Meet service user and group account requirements.
If you precreate your own user and group accounts to work in Db2 Big SQL, the accounts must meet specific requirements. See Users, groups, and ports.
- Learn about installation default ports.
- Collect information that you will need to enter during the installation process.
- Obtain the software.
Download the Db2 Big SQL installation tarball file from Passport Advantage®. See Obtaining Db2 Big SQL.
- Plan your Db2 Big SQL topology.
You can deploy Db2 Big SQL in two different topologies. See Planning your Db2 Big SQL topology.
- Optimize performance.
When you install Db2 Big SQL, there are guidelines that you can follow to optimize performance. See Cluster and system tuning.
- Extract the Db2 Big SQL installation files.
Extract the installation files for Db2 Big SQL, including the Db2 Big SQL Console. See Extracting the Db2 Big SQL installation files.
- Install the Cloudera Manager python client.
If you are installing Db2 Big SQL on a cluster that does not have access to the internet, you must manually install the Cloudera Manager python client. See Installing the Cloudera Manager python client.
- Configure Db2 Big SQL for Cloudera Data Platform
Run the Db2 Big SQL configuration utility to set parameters that the installation process needs. See Db2 Big SQL configuration utility.
- Run the preinstallation utility.
The preinstallation utility verifies that your Linux® system is ready to install the Db2 Big SQL service. The utility runs automatically when you install Db2 Big SQL. However, it is a good idea to manually run the utility before you install Db2 Big SQL. See Db2 Big SQL pre-installation check utility.
II. Install software components
- Install the Db2 Big SQL service.
- Optional: Install the Db2 Big SQL Console.
To extend the power of CDP, install the Db2 Big SQL Console, the tool for administering, monitoring, and managing Db2 Big SQL performance. See Optional: Installing the Db2 Big SQL console.
- Optional: Enable SLM tags.
To help you monitor the license usage of IBM products, enable Software License Management (SLM) tags. The IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) helps you determine your full and sub-capacity processor value units (PVU) licensing requirements. See Optional: Enabling SLM tags.
- Configure Atlas.
If you install Atlas after Db2 Big SQL, some configuration is required to make Atlas work with Db2 Big SQL. See Configuring Atlas when Atlas is installed after Db2 Big SQL.
